  The Detail...

Be enchanted by The Dragons Nest, a totally unique property in Brixham that has an interesting design or style detail around every corner. Children and adults alike will be delighted at this Devon getaway that mixes magic and fantasy into its very essence.

Taking its name from the two baby dragon sculptures on the chimney stack, there is truly inspired design throughout this one-of-a-kind holiday escape in the South West. With its central location in the town, this four-storey house has stunning views across the harbour and to the bay beyond.

Upon entering The Dragons Nest from the street, guests walk straight into the hub which is a spacious open plan kitchen and dining area. With a six burner double oven, large fridge/freezer, and plenty of pots, pans, crockery, and glassware, there is everything needed to cook up a feast. The focal point of the dining area is the large fireplace with chestnut roasting tray, while the large table, wood panelled walls and leather sofa gives it a feeling of rich luxury. There is also a cloakroom and covered storage area with washing machine and tumble dryer.

Stairs lead up to the first floor and the lounge, complete with its two sofas, games, books, TV, and music system to keep those of all ages entertained. The first of two master bedrooms is also on this level, complete with an en suite with a super-luxurious roll top bath and walk-in shower. On the second floor landing is a traditional rocking horse, and just long from here is the second master bedroom with another comfy king size bed. There's also the Captain's Cabin with a nice built-in 3/4 double bed. At the top of the building is the attic; this is an open plan space with a double bed, sofa bed, pull out single bed, and another en suite bathroom.

Halfway up the first set of stairs in The Dragons Den is a secret doorway, which leads to the elevated lawn garden with views over the harbour - perfect for a picnic or evening drink. A short walk leads to the harbour itself with its array of shops, restaurants, cafes, and bars. The Shoalstone outdoor pool and famous fish market are also popular spots in town. Guests are sure to enjoy a wonderful seaside break at this delightful property perched on the harbour's edge.

Mike T says...
"Such an attractive stay. A picture perfect location along with a beautifully thought laid-out interior will leave you mesmerised absorbing the day to day wanderings through the windows of both locals and tourists along the harbour front. Wake to the calling gulls chasing the morning catch; watch the tidal sea creep its way in and out all this before you even think about exploring outside. A 'healthy' climb up the side steps reveals a hidden garden contoured to the cliff face — the perfect place for a glass and to watch the harbour lights up as dusk falls. Local convenience stores are just a short walk away, as are the many quality restaurants and bars and who could not forget to mention the best English Fish & Chips. (Sorry Whitby you may have lost the 'Golden Potato' award!) Location 5 / 5. Comfort 5 / 5. Instagramability 5+ / 5."

"We had a great time at Dragons Nest, it is such a quirky place and you can tell some serious effort has gone in by some skilled craftsmen.

LOVED the open fire with the traditional spit.

The views out of every window are simply stunning, they have supplied everything you could need and more, the owners and their communication was great!

We would, and will 100% return for another stay, hopefully longer next time as there is so much to explore."

"Very sweet house in a wonderful location. Everything we needed was there, and anything that wasn't was available within a 2 minute walk.
We enjoyed Brixham very much, ate some superbly fresh fish, and walked it off on the sea wall.
The views over the harbour are just lovely.
I would highly recommend The Dragons Nest."
